EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

HOWIE ROSEMAN acted far more professionally than I would have. Had a reporter suggested to my face that I had tried to duck him at a news conference, I would have told him to pucker up to my backside. In fact, if I were Roseman, I can think of a half-dozen times during Tuesday's Doug Pederson news conference when I would have gotten out of my seat and said the same thing to the assembled media - sternly adding, "All of you!!!" It was Pederson's day. The former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach returned to South Philadelphia to replace Chip Kelly as captain of the Eagles' ship.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

THE EAGLES are scheduled to interview Steelers pro personnel coordinator Brandon Hunt on Friday for their personnel opening, an NFL source confirmed. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported that the Birds had asked Pittsburgh's permission to talk to Hunt, an Indiana University of Pennsylvania grad who played guard there from 2000 to 2003. Hunt interned with the Steelers, then scouted for the Texans before returning to the Steelers organization in 2010. Obviously, Hunt would bring the Eagles luster from one of the league's best personnel operations, but, just as obviously, he would not have the résumé or the stature to rank ahead of Eagles vice president Howie Roseman in the football operations structure.

MOBILE, Ala. - More kind words for Sam Bradford Tuesday, from new Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich, in his first remarks to reporters since taking the position last week, and again from team vice president Howie Roseman. No clear picture of exactly how much the Eagles feel they need Bradford, who can be an unrestricted free agent in March. That isn't unusual, when there is a contract to be negotiated. Maybe the Eagles would make it clear by their words or actions if they had no interest in retaining Bradford.

MOBILE, Ala. - Before he was so rudely interrupted a year ago, Howie Roseman was trying to build an atmosphere in which players drafted by the Eagles would stay with the Eagles, would feel valued by the organization, and would build valuable continuity for the team. Roseman, back in charge of Eagles personnel after a yearlong hiatus at the insistence of former coach Chip Kelly, is moving to re-establish that initiative this week with new deals for the team's top two tight ends, Zach Ertz (five years, $42.5 million, on Monday)

MOBILE, Ala. - Howie Roseman had to check with a nearby Eagles spokesman when he wanted to know Tuesday's date. It was Jan. 26. Whether the Eagles vice president of football operations really knew the date or not didn't matter. The point Roseman was trying to make, after being asked about Sam Bradford and the decision the team will have to make about the quarterback position, was that it was still early in the process. "It's only January," Roseman said after Senior Bowl practice.

MOBILE, Ala. - Brent Celek might get to retire an Eagle. But judging from his consistency and durability during his first nine seasons, the tight end may outlast the three-year contract he agreed to on Tuesday. Celek had two years added to his existing deal and will be signed through the 2018 season. The total worth of the contract is $13 million, with $6 million guaranteed. Celek was slated to earn $5 million in the final year of his previous contract. While the exact details are not known, the new contract is expected to lower Celek's salary-cap number for 2016.

After the season ended, Eagles management told tight end Zach Ertz that the team wanted to sign him to a contract extension during the offseason. Ertz expected it to take longer than three weeks, but the Eagles followed through on Monday. Ertz signed a five-year extension through the 2021 season that will pay him $42.5 million with $20 million guaranteed, according to a league source. The deal makes Ertz one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL and also fortifies the 2013 second-round pick as a foundation piece for the franchise.

MOBILE, Ala. - Doug Pederson and the Eagles have several weeks before they have to make a decision on Sam Bradford. They could sign the quarterback to a long-term contract, place their franchise or transition tag on him or let the 28-year old walk in free agency. If they chose to not bring Bradford back - and right now that would come as a surprise - it would be a clear indication that they intend to expend a high draft selection on a quarterback. There is only one prospect at this week's Senior Bowl practices that merits mention as a possible first-round draft pick: Carson Wentz.

MOBILE, Ala. - Doug Pederson, Frank Reich, Jim Schwartz, Howie Roseman and the rest of the new Eagles' regime will convene here Tuesday to start sorting out prospects for the 2016 NFL draft. Senior Bowl week, held in this bayside city whose downtown area is maybe a tad larger than the South Philly sports complex, is a throwback to the NFL of 40 or 50 years ago. One practice is held at a high school field, the others at South Alabama's Ladd-Peebles Stadium, where groups of scouts and coaches congregate on metal bleacher seats, job seekers pass out business cards to anyone who will take one, and agents are easily identified as the guys dressed and coiffed like no one else in the state of Alabama.

In the last year, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has presided over an organizational chart of chutes and ladders where power rose and fell and rose again so precipitously that even the beefy employees on the first floor felt the vibrations from above. Like a man walking an Escher staircase, general manager Howie Roseman exerted his muscle, had it taken away, went into exile, and then climbed back to the top of the steps so rapidly he must have been taking them two at a time. It really was a remarkable year and, except for the part where the whole organization essentially blew up, it was fascinating to watch the show unfold.

Which explanation was worse: Doug Pederson's for his play-calling during the Chiefs' snail-paced final drive against the Patriots ("We did not want to give Tom Brady the ball back. ") or Chip Kelly's for the delay between being hired by the 49ers and having his introductory news conference ("I had no clothes. ")? In terms of actual football, Pederson's was more egregious - if you believe that it was really him and not Andy Reid that was orchestrating that series. The new Eagles coach, the theory goes, fell on the sword for his mentor and biggest advocate in replacing Kelly.
